in the u.s. but we will have to think about how do we produce electricity more efficiently? in addition to producing, we have to think about making sure we are not wasting energy. i do not know how we're doing on the georgetown campus, mr. president, but every institution and household has to start thinking about how are we reducing the amount of energy we're using and doing it in more efficient ways. our homes and businesses consume 40% of the energy we use and it costs billions of dollars in energy. manufacturers that require large amounts of energy to make their products, their challenge by rising energy costs and so you cannot separate the issue of all dependents from the issue of how we're producing more energy generally. that is why we propose new programs to help americans upgrade their homes and businesses and plans with new energy-efficient building materials, new lighting, new windows, new heating and cooling systems. investments that will save consumers and business owners tens of billions of dollars a year and free money for money and investment and hiring and putting contra

in the u.s. to congressmen and people on the left and right and journalists and think tanks and ordinary citizens and the same conclusion kept leaping out at me again and again. most americans do not realize how lucky they are you know, the political institution defined the country in many cases unique and almost all cases on usual. i'm talking about term limits, the recall mechanism, the citizens' initiative and referendum and states' rights and localism, open primaries, totally unique feature but ones that make the largest leaders answerable to the rest of us, and above all i'm talking about the direct election of almost everybody. it's human nature to take for granted that which is familiar to us, but it's these institutions growing organically growing out of the constitution that has served to keep your government more and your people free. sometimes i say this and they say there are cultural differences. we are naturally liberal people. we got away from the monarchies and the collapse is into the old world and so on. i'm afraid that explanation does not quite work. culture is and fr

with commenting on recent comments that were made about fairness in the u.s. tax code even though it's not a tax code discussion. i want to clarify that i guess my definition of fairness isn't the same as what's described when 45% of the american people don't pay any income tax at all. the top tax bracts are paying 35% of their income and the top are paying 70% of all income tax. i disagree with that definition of fairness and i want to clarify that in the context of budg budg budg budgetary. the epa, this is a different direction than what has been taken so far. they have five education efforts in their recent congressional document talking about support and work and partnership with k-12 schools. federal and state agencies to establish priorities and leverage resources. lastly, an effort to increase promotion of green principles and increase the nation's scientific education. i would like to know if the department of education has been involved in those efforts through the e prngs a because it seems they should be talked about in education, not through epa. >> we had a good partnership with ad
